Take the First Step Toward Your Educational Goals

If you are 16 years old or older, CVABE’s adult education can provide you with individualized instruction that will help you acquire the skills for increasing employment and higher education opportunities, and enhance personal growth. Services are offered in Central Vermont’s Washington, Orange and Lamoille Counties, and our programs are free.

We Will Work With You

We will work with you to identify your educational goals and develop a Personalized Learning Plan to meet those goals. You will learn what you want and need, and where and when it's convenient for you.

Student learning can be in small groups, one-on-one instruction with an instructor, an online course, or through independent learning projects and internships.


We understand that you as an adult are busy with work and family responsibilities, so we provide flexible scheduling to meet your needs. instruction is available seven days a week from 7 AM to 7 PM (with prior notice).


If the cost of transportation or childcare is in the way of reaching your educational goals, CVABE may be able to help. Just ask a teacher.


In some instances, CVABE contracts with other educational institutions, businesses, and workers’ compensation insurance companies on a fee for service basis.
